    I bought a bundle of bamboo sticks for the garden and made my trellis with that. It's pretty simple, just get wire ties or twine and tie them together. You can use a nail and bend it over the stick to hold it to the fence (if your fence is wood). Or you can use the twine/ties to hold it to the fence.

    Good luck!

    It depends on the shape and size you want. I used cotton string for the morning glories-- that worked out very well. A lot of trellises only have to be temporary skeletons untill your plant assumes its shape. What are you training? Tell me a plant and I will tell you a plan.

    Along with stone, mud and animal parts, wood was one of the first materials worked by early humans. Microwear analysis of the Mousterian stone tools used by the Neanderthals show that many were used to work wood. The development of civilization was closely tied to the development of increasingly greater degrees of skill in working these materials.

    Sure, though grafting it to an existing fence may be difficult for several structural reasons.

    What do you want to trellis? Different plants tend to need different structures... many climbing roses, for instance, tend to go straight up, but cane fruit like raspberries need long horizontal supports.
